RUSH954 GOES IN WITH 1 ALPHA AND EPI-V

Page 3 of 7 First 12345 ... Last

  1. Today felt great weight was 204.3 this morning. I find that I feel a pump throughout the day. Had a good day overall both in and out of the gym. I worked pretty hard today and felt as though I could move more weight and for longer. I went up 20lbs on the chest press and it felt good.
    4 sets of 12 at 200lbs was a good achievement for me today. I don't believe that's a P.R. But I feel I could've went up another 20lbs but didn't want to push to far. I'm honestly not really trying for any P.R.'s at the current moment just trying to increase weight in small increments and keep high quality workouts going.
    Diet went well as I continue on just veggies an lean meats. Using small amounts of fats either in olive oil, coconut oil when marinating food. I will continue to stay this way through this month and then will cycle carbs on a 3:1 ratio. I'm starting to feel a lot more energy in this way. Sucked at first but it's cool now.
    Supps remained the same today 2 caps of 1 Alpha both am and pm.
    Whey protein, glucosamine and added D3 as I was told I was a little low. I enjoy the added benefits with the D3. Zma and lots of water. I'm fuggin thirsty as ever these past few days. Used condense for a pre workout today as I needed a little push after a long day.
    I hate cardio in the gym. Feel like a damn hamster running on a wheel. Warm up only 10 mins on the bike. I will be sprinting tomorrow after my leg session.
    Today worked chest and back in a superset fashion.
    Incline DB press ss with bent over DB rows 30,20,10,5,5

    Flat bench press ss with T bar row
    30,20,10,10,5

    Decline bench alone. ( personal favorite)
    15,15,12,10,10
    50% of 1RM for first two sets then progressively increased weight. Btw my 1RM on decline is going to be high I can taste it. this will probably be my first P.R. To be made.

    Middle back row
    15,12,12,10
    This was hard for me to pull off. Felt like the arms where pulling instead of back on last set. Took a few minutes to rest before I went on

    Deadlift
    15,12,10,10
    Was a great feeling to get some deads in as its been a while. Lmao I farted on last set while trying to straighten out. Of course I looked around like everyone else like I wasn't guilty. Total protein fart at the gyms busiest time on a monday. No one asked how many sets I had left after that one.
    Had a large space to myself but no shame in my game. Went on with workout after that. Good times and laughs.
    Lat pulldowns
    15,12,12,10,10
    Good form squeezing Lats. I can feel them still.
    *goal increase back width.

    Shoulder shrug
    20,15,12,12,10
    I sometimes give shrugs a go on back day as I feel I indirectly hit them in back workouts so why not.

    Cool down foam rolled at home

    Felt great not tired one but at the gym every exercise I did I feel activated the necessary muscle so workout was a success. Third day dosing 4 caps a day hopefully recovery will be quick from workouts. By the end of this month would like to hit two a days for at least a week

    Agreed, awesome log thus far.

  5. Thanx guys for the support. Im glad your enjoying the ride. Yesterday was the last day no complex carbs im really exicited about that. Now back to eating for a day. Im going to start carb cycling on a 3:1 ratio. 1 alpha is treating me great. I have been fulling fuller and bigger the last few days. yesterday I was impressed, Libido has shown a large increase in last two days. I can tell its about that time for some action. Only side was a headache I carried for the day yesterday. Everything goes away when I get to work at the gym though.

    I said I wasnt going to workout just cardio. yeah ok. I have a small gym in my community nothing major but I put it to use every once in a while it has all cardio equipment and a few machines. I did my 15 minutes on the hamster wheel(Treadmill) then I decided to hit the biceps. so I thought why not superset with triceps. this was a great idea short sweet and to the point.

    cable curl ss tricep pushdown
    40,30,20,10 then 10,20,30,40
    I just fel great after this so I decied to work abs
    Diamond crunch 5 sets of 20
    decline sit up 5 sets of 20
    leg raises 4 sets of 20

    This was for yesterday. I didnt get a chance to post it last night. weight this morning 203.6lbs
    Mid way through second week I'm definitely starting to feel the 1 Alpha as other have said. Not yet a major difference but noticable.
    I feel pumped throughout the day. I dont even feel the need for a pre workout once I start lifting. I dont feel like leaving when im finished.
    Weight hasnt dramatically increased as its not even been two weeks. Honestly I like what I'm feeling. Good stuff so far.
    Today I'm going to go put in work. see you guys after

    this was a great mini workout on a non workout day.

    Sometimes you're just feeling it! Glad to hear you got an awesome workout in and the fuller pumped feeling is an awesome feeling!

  7. Back to work this afternoon. worked on legs and shoulders
    warm up consisted of the elliptical 10 minutes on random.
    I usually start with squats as do most but today I decied to do iso work first to get all muscles fired uo before squatting.
    started with leg Extentions 5 sets 15,12,10,10,8
    first two sets were warm up sets 50% to 85% for reps

    Lying leg curl 12,12,10,10,8
    I make sure to squeeze tight when at the top of the movement and control is always used no swinging weights around for me.

    hip Ad and AB duction 4 sets of 15
    these excersices are some of my favorite to work on. As I'm getting older I'm working the hips more. I had issues with my right knee a few years back in tearing ACL and ever since rehabbing that I always work the hips as often as possible.

    standing calf raise 4 sets of 20
    last set being a drop set

    then to the good stuff
    angled leg press ss with calf raises on leg press 15,15,12,12
    for calf raises three variations feet straight, big toes touching , and last toes out heels touching 4 sets of 20
    By this time I was honestly ready to throw up as I had drank a whole lot of water.
    Squats 20,15,15,15,12
    I dont really squat too heavy as I sometimes get knee pain. today I felt great though. I stay around my body weight for reps
    which I dont think its too bad, but today I had the last two sets at 305lbs for 15 and 12 reps which is great for me. I felt with the right person spotting I couldve possibly repped out for more..

    DB shoulder press 15,15,12,12,10
    weight was above normal but nothing crazy.
    warmed up with the 50lb dumbbells. increased 110lbs a set

    front db raises ss with side raises 15,12,12,10
    boy were these tough today. the shoulders felt fried just from the shoulder presses but I was in the zone today. workout without headphones and I felt like I was alone in the gym at 5pm so go figure my state of mind.

    shoulder shrugs 15,15,12,12,10
    I'm going to have to invest in wrist straps as Im losing grip once in higher weights. If anyone knows how to improve grip strength please let me know.
    I was int the zone during workout today Blinders on for sure. My workout intesity is increasing. even though I knew I had worked out for long I still wanted to do more. So of course I played two full court games of Basketball for my cool down and cardio. that is one of the benefits of my gym.
    I started making myself a homemade weight gainer shake. 1600 cals- 2 cups of uncooked oats 2 scoops of protein and 4 tbs of natural P.B. with a cap of vanilla and a sprinkle of cinnamon. this was excellent as something between meals and it helped a whole lot. Diet was pretty good im at 4200 cals today thanks to my shake. Might just add one in every other day and see how that treats me.
    Today headache wasnt there. I started taking my Organ shield again.
    supps for the day
    4-1 alpha 2 am and 2 pm
    3 opti men multi
    1 tbs glucosamine and chondrition
    2 organ shield
    3 ZMA
    1 extra sleepytime tea

  8. nice gainer shake there, rush
    so simple - yet, some make it so complicated
    and i just noticed that sleepytime tea at bed - celestial seasonings? man that stuff used to be a staple for me, a bag of sleepytime + a bag of tension tamer..these days, i'm hooked on G8..takes care of my sleep issues like no one's business
    keep cracking my friend!

    I need to try that G8 for sure. Sleep is rare in my life and I try to get as much as possible. Being a light sleeper is a curse.

    This is the first time I make a gainer at home. I save a lot this way and just have to buy a bigger whey protein. Gotta love Saving money. It seems as though the supplement list grows the longer you train and harder you work. I'm going to need a sponsor lol....
    Next log= RUSH WILL Work for SUPPS!!!!!

  11. I've been missing for a few days but I'm back stronger than ever. This week was excellent for me as far as training went. I took Friday as a rest day and got back to it today. Weight upon waking was 205.3 which is up two pounds from start and it was the same yesterday as well. This is the end of my 1st week at 4 caps a day of the 1 Alpha. Libido is up, endurance is up high, also recovery between workouts is starting to be faster. As far as strength starting to show some improvement but I'm sure next week will be great. I'm just about two weeks in. Next Monday to be exact. I'm enjoying the 1 Alpha experience. The fact that I can recover faster is definitely a plus to me. I can get more accomplished in a week, every body part twice a week. I feel fuller in general. I have been eating at maintenance but am planning to increase quite a bit for the last two weeks. I will be implementing heavier weights more drop sets and supersets into my routine as of next week. I will either grow or die. lmaoo....

    today I worked the back and biceps which was fun my endurance is through the roof. I timed my workout from locker room to finish and it was 2hrs and 20 minutes. craziness, as I'm one to be finished in under an hr at all times. I was annoyed with the fixed cardio so I chose to do something different today

    warm up
    pull ups, dips, leg raise ss 4 sets of 15 each exercise with 1 min rest in between sets.

    then 5 sets of 12 reps deadlifts no gas today. lol
    bent over rows with BB 5 sets of 15 reps.
    seated rows 5 sets of 12
    rear delt on machine 5 sets of 15
    lat pulldowns 5 sets of 12
    close grip pulldowns 5 sets of 12
    wide grip pull ups 5 sets of 10
    bb curl 5 sets of 10
    incline db curl 5 sets 12,12,12,8
    hammer curls 5 sets of 10
    reverse curls 5 sets 12,12,10,10,8
    preacher curl on machine 4 sets of 12
    last set was a dropset.
    great workout nice and slow negative and focused on squeezes.
    will edit have to take my wife to dinner.

    This was my post workout meal with a whey protein shake. It did the job.

    Noticing I'm feeling hungrier more the past three days. No sides as of yet libido is up. Endurance is most noticeable change to date. I am starting to notice a strength increase creeping in though. I know this week will be lots of fun and I'm sure to enjoy it, and put up some very good numbers for myself. Anyone have any good suggestions for a good product for joints?
